New Democrats are fighting for a fairer, more inclusive Canada

Our strong, NDP team is focused on your priorities.

Our New Democrat team is fighting every day for a fairer, more inclusive Canada that works for everyone, not just the wealthy and the well-connected.

In 2016, we successfully pushed Parliament to recognize equal pay for women as a human right, secured all-party support for our plan to end discrimination against First Nations children, and to expand EI coverage for vulnerable workers.

We also pressured the government to reverse their plan to override provincial consumer protection rights, and united all opposition parties to recommend moving our electoral system to a proportional one, where every vote counts.

Instead of looking out for hard-working Canadians and their communities, Ottawa is letting private and corporate interests set the government’s priorities.

Our strong, New Democrat opposition is focused on your priorities:

  • Putting an end to cash-for-access fundraisers, so that access to the Prime Minister can’t be sold to Corporate CEOs and multi-millionaires.
  • Protecting good jobs from unfair trade deals.
  • Defending public health care from privatization and cuts.
  • Protecting the environment and calling for a clear plan to meet our international climate change obligations.
  • Pushing back on Ottawa’s private infrastructure scheme that will cost Canadians billions.
  • Fighting to ensure every vote counts with a fair, proportional electoral system.
